Greenville's Jessica Dothager Tabbed as SLIAC Volleyball Player of the Year; Gall Newcomer of the Year

GREENVILLE, Ill. - Jessica Dothager and Tricia Gall headlined Greenville College's honorees among the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference postseason award recipients announced following the conclusion of the SLIAC tournament.  Two additional Lady Panthers were all-conference selections.

Dothager, a junior middle blocker of Brighton, Ill., was named the player of the year, while the Panther freshman Tricia Gall, a middle blocker of Troy, Ill., was named newcomer of the year.  Both women were first team selections.

Dothager completed her season as the SLIAC leader in hitting percentage and blocks, while teammate Gall ranked second in both categories.  Dothager averaged a hitting percentage of .321 and 1.00 block per set.  Gall was close behind, hitting for an average of .312 and gaining 0.90 blocks per set.

Second team award winners from Greenville were junior Katelin Feyerabend, an opposite hitter from Quincy, Ill., and senior Lauren Finders, a setter from Murphysboro, Ill.  Feyerabend was second in the SLIAC with 3.57 kills per set, and Finders led the SLIAC with 9.45 assists per set.

The Greenville volleyball team placed second in the conference tournament, pushing Webster to five sets in a heartbreaking loss in the championship match.  Junior Alyssa Cliffe and Feyerabend earned recognition on the all-tournament team.

The Lady Panthers and head coach Tom Ackerman concluded their season with a record of 18-12, which marked the most season victories since Lynn Adams led the 1992 squad to 22 victories.
